talked earlier about the fiscal cliff and debt ceiling. it is clear there is legislative gridlock in this town. what happens in the months to come with this kind of gridlock -- we already see the battle lines being drawn about what is to happen when these entitlements did on the table with in march. what happens to the poor as you see it in the coming months? >> let me first say, thank you so much for allow me to be part of this conversation. i am happy that you have been carrying on this kind of conversation over the last few years. let me try and see if i can put something in context for you -- i think that is something we never really talk about. a lot of this fiscal cliff stuff is really smoke and mirrors -- when you sit back and realize the largest portion of the debt of this country is really three things -- one is two wars we never paid for, what is a medicare part that we never paid for, and the other part is the bush tax cuts. those of the largest portions of the debt of this nation. what they're trying to do now by cutting what you call entitlements and i call and benefits

budget isn't approved this year. 111 democrats voted against raiding the debt ceiling calling that provision a gimmick. however, it goes well beyond the house. today senator dick durbin revealed the democrats don't have the 51 votes necessary to reinstitute the talking filibuster even through the so-called nuclear option, even though everyone seems to want it. the last hope in filibuster reform is harry reid's great compromise of needing 41 votes to maintain a filibuster but i'm confident that the democrats will find some way to back down from that, too. joining me now the only one and only michael tomasky. starting with the debt ceiling. 111 democrats voted against raising the debt ceiling. was this all about the no budget no pay provision are the democrats trying to stick it to the g.o.p. >> i think the latter and i think the more constitutionalists among them assuming that they are there that the amendment mattered more to them. but emotionally they probably wanted to make boehner pass this bill with his republicans. you know, in a way don't blame them for that. it's a harmless game. there are harmful games and harmless games. that was a relatively harmless one. obama also supported the passage of this, john, i think that if it had been in danger i think en

downgrade. now, this is important. the president talks about the importance of lifting the debt ceiling because he said we don't want to suffer another downgrade in our credit standing, but indeed one of the reasons why we have already suffered a negative response to our credit rating is because we haven't dealt with the real problems that confront our country, the $16.4 trillion in debt, and we haven't come together in a bipartisan way to save and preserve social security and medicare and to keep the promises that we have made to our seniors. that has caused the credit downgrade. most of all, what americans want, i believe, is a serious, good-faith, open, transparent discussion over america's long-term budget strategy. they want both parties to work together. ironically, the best time to actually do that is when we have divided government like we have. they want both parties to dmon straight that they are capable of having an adult conversation about balancing our budget. unfortunately, the president has given very little indication that he is prepared to negotiate on these important i

ceiling votes and budget negotiations was something he said that -- quote -- "we had never done in our history until we did it last year." well, that statement is false. frankly, we shouldn't be talking about responsible spending reform every time we debate any measure in congress that involves spending money. we should seniorly do it when we're debating borrowing more money. the debt limit has been used at least 20 times in the past 60 years specifically tied to debating fiscal reform. for example, in 1954, congress passed a temporary increase specifically as a way to control future finances. in 1967, the house actually defeated a debt limit increase so that it could force president johnson to quit using some of the budget tricks that he had been using. in 1970, the debate over the debt limit included amendments to cut defense spend, impose a spending cap, and freeze congressional pay until congress passed a balanced budget. in 1983, congress actually defeated a debt limit increase bill. senator russell long told his colleagues that he throated for the increase, "you are a voting to increase the biggest deficits in the history of this country as far as the eye can seevment" well, incident

can't simplify it and say, stop spending. the problem is that the debt ceiling has nothing to do with the full faith and credit of money that's already spent. and that we have plenty of time to talk about taxes and spending, if we talk about concurrent resolutions, if we were talking about sequestration. if what you're saying is that if there's a budget that i have to vote yes or no on, and one budget says that one way to close and reduce the deficit is to go after the people that are the poorest, the most sick and the oldest and call that entitlement cutbacks, and if i don't vote for that, then it means that the government is not going to pay me, i can go home very easily and tell them a bad budget is worse than no budget and once again, we are holding the spending cuts that a will the -- a lot of people want that should be negotiated hostage. perhaps we've not a three-month -- we've got a three-month reprieve. but the fact remains this is holding up the president and our country from getting on with what we should do, when the impact, fiscal impact of this on our country throughout the world is dangerous. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from michigan. mr. camp: thank you, mr.
